By Andrew J. Pierce

Collective id, Oppression, and the correct to Self-Ascription argues that teams have an irreducibly collective correct to figure out the that means in their shared crew id, and that this sort of correct is mainly vital for traditionally oppressed teams. the writer specifies this correct in terms of a transformed discourse ethic, demonstrating that it might give you the starting place for a notion of identification politics that avoids a lot of its traditional pitfalls. the focal point all through is on racial id, which gives a try out case for the idea. that's, it investigates what it can suggest for racial identities to be self-ascribed instead of imposed, developing the prospective position racial identification could play in a simply society. The publication hence makes a distinct contribution to either the sphere of serious thought, which has been woefully silent on problems with race, and to race concept, which regularly both presumes simply society will be a raceless society, or focuses totally on knowing present racial inequalities, within the demeanour normal of so-called “non-ideal theory.”
